Chemicals company Lanxess has set up a project group for components made from its Tepex continuous-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic semi-finished composites.

The group – Tepex automotive technical marketing & business development will cover materials, processes, and the selection of suitable components for automotive lightweight construction with Tepex. ‘Our main job is to work with partners right from the concept phase and to lay the groundwork for ensuring that component development is successful in terms of material, weight, processing and costs,’ says Martin Klocke, head of the group in the high performance materials business unit (HPM).

Lanxess is also publishing a brochure on Tepex processing for the K 2016 trade fair in Düsseldorf, Germany which takes place in October.
